Even though the plug that plugs into the wall on an M-7310 looks like the same plug that the answering machine has, it's function is completely different. The information passed on the single pair of wires is enough to make a 24 button 10 button or 8 button system phone work, has no ringing voltage or dial tone for a single line device like your answering machine.
A Nortel system has ports that have that information, but most likely the answering machine was installed BEFORE the phone system lines, which means it only answered the first line.
Try plugging your answering machine into the EXACT location it was before.
The problem is that the circuitry inside got wet and there is no knowing what that water damage got into .. shorts across circuit board components etc.. so it is what it is,.. it may work..but chances are something in the logic got corrupt by that water.. It's a hit or miss proposition.. I doubt very much that it will recover on it's own after this length of time drying out.. Good luck..
Panasonic has a feature for those who forget to turn their machine on.
If the answering system is off, you
can turn it on remotely. 1
Dial your phone
Let the phone ring
15 times. The unit answers your call with the greeting message. You can hang up, or if you call from
a touch tone phone, you can enter your remote code and begin remote operation.
Pressing 0 will turn the machine back off.
Most people will not let the phone ring 15 times when calling you. No way to circumvent without unplugging from the phone jack.
